My husband and I can take Zoe and her brother to the local tennis courts and play tennis like any other family.
Our first one-on-one session with founder, Richard Spurling, was pretty much a disaster. Zoe wouldn’t focus. She bolted all over the place. We couldn’t get her attention. I started thinking up the excuses I would give Richard, fully expecting that he was about to utter what had become those all-too-familiar words, “Maybe she’s just not ready.”
But he didn’t. Instead, Richard said, “I think that was a good start. Will you come back again next week?”
And so we began on this path, slowly knocking obstacles out of Zoe’s way one at a time over these past 14 years. Sure, it’s been bumpy at times, but today Zoe hits running forehands and backhands with a smile on her face and has a killer forehand volley.
